Synopsis by Alice Day
The fragile rainforest ecosystem is the subject of Nature: Selva Verde, and the viewer learns many reasons why it is essential to preserve these areas. The film offers an extensive tour of Selva Verde, and shows the many animals and the rich variety of foods that enable them to survive. The abundance of nutrients is a prime factor in the evolution of rainforest species, yet with the encroachment of civilization, the resources disappear, and so do the animals. The program points out the basic nature of life in the rainforest, and provides visually stunning footage.
